Recently Released: Report on Best Practices for Citability of Data and Evolving Roles in Scholarly Communication

Two new reports from the Alliance For Permanent Access:

1. Report of Best Practices for Citability of Data and on Evolving Roles in Scholarly Communication

This report sets out the current thinking on data citation best practice and presents the results of a survey of librarians asking how new support roles could and should be developed.

2. Compilation of Results on Drivers and Barriers and New Opportunities

The ODE Conceptual Model has been developed within the Project to characterise the process of data sharing and the factors which give rise to variations in data sharing for different parties involved. Within the overall Conceptual Model there can be identified models of process, of context, and of drivers, barriers and enablers. The Conceptual Model has been evolved on the basis of existing knowledge and expertise, and draws on research conducted both outside of the ODE Project and in earlier stages of the Project itself.
